One of the areas where we have already made significant environmental progress
is within our distribution fleet, which is already compliant with the Euro V emissions standard, three years ahead of its implementation. We also have a number of other initiatives to reduce our environmental impact in this area. These include the use of route planning software to minimise mileage, an on-board system that encourages drivers to drive in a manner that minimises fuel consumption, and the use of Saltron to improve diesel quality and reduce emissions.
Keeping our vehicles clean
All our delivery trucks are cleaned on a daily basis when they return from making their deliveries to the stores. Every day, we jetwash the outside using an approved traffic film remover. We also jetwash the inside of the vehicle box to get rid of any debris. Finally, we use 100ml of Biocidal all purpose cleaner with five litres of water to make a two per cent sanitising solution, which is sprayed on the inside of the vehicle box, the floor and the walls and left to air dry.
